This week’s issue focuses solely on the state of the art of AI-generated writing — and how it’s automating writing jobs.
Here’s the intro to the in-depth piece — along with a link to the full story by Joe Dysart:
Amidst the hoopla of all things artificial intelligence, writers are increasingly wrestling with a hard truth: It appears robots are coming for their jobs.
Little more than a plaything of researchers a decade ago, AI and automated robots in 2021 are now regularly churning-out countless news articles, business reports, opinion pieces, sports stories, ad slogans, newsletters, press releases – and more – on a daily basis.
According to highly respected research organization Gartner, all of this AI and related technology will automate production of 30% of all content found on the Worldwide Web by 2022.
Observes Mayur Bhatt, marketing head, SEO Services Guru: “It is only a matter of time before algorithms are able to write articles on any topic and for any target group.”
It’s no wonder writers across the globe are fretting: When do these writing machines show-up at my workplace?
Evangelists of writing driven by AI insist the robots are simply here ‘to serve humanity.’
Robots will do the drudgery work, they say.
Writers will be freed-up to engage in more interesting, more in-depth and more creative work.
Says Lisa Gibbs, news partnerships director, The Associated Press, one of the earliest pioneers of AI-generated news-writing: “The work of journalism is creative.
“It’s about curiosity, it’s about storytelling, it’s about digging and holding governments accountable.
“It’s critical thinking, it’s judgment — and that is where we want our journalists spending their energy.”
But for the many writers and editors who have already lost their jobs to AI, that idyllic future is a tough sell.
